Woman of Mountain Dreams, 5.11a

9th Pitch- 160’- 5.9+/ The remaining pitches start to enter suspect, moss eroded, rock. This is one of the more sustained and thought provoking pitches on the route. Lead up the closed shallow corner, placing a solid small piece in a pod (10’) before traversing (10’) suspect holds out right to gain a chossy small crack. I placed a few micro cams here, nuts would have been better. Follow a few moves up the delicate face holds protecting in this thin crack to be rewarded as it opens up to hands. Continue up the chossy crack to a comfortable but sloping fixed belay.
